About

CAHUN, Claude. Le Coeur de Pic. By Lise DeHarme. With a preface by Paul Eluard. Unpaginated. Illustrated with 20 photographs by Claude Cahun. Small folio, 270 x 200 mm, bound in publisher's grey cloth over red boards with colour photographs on front and back cover by Cahun, preserved in a new maroon cloth folding box. Paris: Jose Corti, 1937. A superb copy of the rare first edition of this much sought-after "children's" book by the surrealist Claude Cahun, with a presentation from DeHarme to George Duvau on the front fly-leaf. Cahun (Lucy Schwob), the celebrated poet, writer and photographer is one of the most mysterious figures of the Surrealist movement, incorporating many self-portraits in her montages which are imbued with a keen sense of the absurd.
